I am a third-year PhD student in the Human-Centered Computing program at Georgia Tech, advised by Lauren Wilcox. I hold a Master's in HCI from Carnegie Mellon University and a B.S. in Cognitive Science from the University of California, San Diego.
My research interests lie at the intersection of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) and Health Informatics, where I specifically focus on designing technology to bridge critical communication gaps between patients and their caregivers. I envision the role of technology as a medium for facilitating patients’ meaningful undestanding of their own health care and, in turn, supporting their increased participation and independence in care. My ultimate goal is to design healthcare technology systems aimed at augmenting these aspects of patient engagement through enhanced patient-clinician communication. With collaborators at the Aflac Cancer and Blood Disorders Center at CHOA, I am investigating how information systems can be designed to communicate care information to teens with chronic illness in ways that support their transition into adulthood.
Previously, I was involved in industry projects aimed at supporting communication at the Boeing 737 factory and enhancing the cooking experience for modern living.
In my free time, I like to practice my culinary skills, challenge myself to physical activities, and follow tech blogs.
